Film has always touched my heart in a special way, and I love to take the every day moments of life and turn them into something cinematic and beautiful. As a filmmaker, it's a creative challenge like no other to catch something that only happens once and tell a story without a script. Your wedding day will probably go by even faster than you can imagine, but you can relax and just enjoy the moment knowing that I'll be there to capture all of the precious words and tender moments that you'll treasure for years to come.
My studio is based in my hometown of Syracuse, NY, but we film weddings all over New York State including the Finger Lakes, Catskill, Adirondack, and Hudson Valley Regions as well as New York City. We also love to travel and shoot out of state so please ask!
Gabby is the lead editor at Cullen Studio and also the lead shooter of our second team, but you may also meet her while she is assisting Zach at your wedding. She is a designer by training but started assisting her college friend (Zach) with his new video business as a part time job and quickly fell in love with the art of storytelling. She loves the way that editing allows her to uncover the beauty in small interactions and shape a story that heightens the emotions of a memory.
Fun Fact: Cute things make her cry, specifically adorable grandparents.
Gabby is also a part-time staff member of Cru at Syracuse University where she mentors students. She still loves design and pursues many other creative disciplines that continue to make her a better filmmaker.
Given the choice between an awesome shot of some gorgeous scenery and an imperfect shot of a candid moment we would choose the latter every time. We arrive early, stay late, and make sure you have fun along the way. Your film will be shot and edited in a creative, elegant style to give you a work of art that feels timeless and cinematic. Our teams use DSLR cameras and the best lenses so we can guarantee our presence is discreet and unobtrusive. We understand that everyone has different needs and comfort levels so we only focus on what's important to you. During portrait times we work with your photographer so that you don't need to take extra time out of your day. We have a great reputation for working well with photographers and we're always hearing "I can't believe how easy you are to work with! Let's do this again some time."
